    Police: Brockton Man Found With Over $50K Worth of Drugs
    State police arrested a Brockton man found in possession of $50,000 worth of drugs, according to a release.

    A Brockton man was arrested by Massachusetts State Police on Friday after he was found with $50,000 worth of drugs, according to troopers.

    Etimilson Cabral, 18, faces seven different charges, including multiple drug charges, the unlawful possession of ammunition and operating after a license suspension.

    Cabral was stopped by police while he was driving at the intersection of Albion Street and N. Montello Street around 5:10 p.m. Police initially arrested Cabral because his license had been revoked, troopers said.

    Troopers searched Cabral's car and body after the arrest. Cabral tensed his body "in a manner that prevented troopers from conducting a full search of his person," according to police, so he was brought back to his home, where a strip-search was carried out in private.

    After searching Cabral, police found:

    -16 knotted twists of suspected fentanyl with an approximate street value of $470

    - 4 knotted twists of suspected carfentanil with an approximate street value of $100

    - 11 knotted twists of suspected crack cocaine with an approximate street value of $330

    - An electronic scale

    - $340 in cash.

    Based on the results of that search, Troopers applied for and obtained a search warrant for Cabral’s bedroom in the Albion Street house.

    Brockton detectives and Troopers carried out the search warrant on the room shortly before 9 p.m., police said. Troopers and detectives found a safe in the room. When the safe was opened, police found:

    - 423 grams of suspected fentanyl with an approximate street value of $42,300;

    - 87 grams of suspected cocaine with an approximate street value of $8,700; and

    - $308 in US currency.

    In the safe Troopers and detectives also found and seized five rounds of .25 caliber ammunition and six additional electronic scales.

    Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid more powerful than heroin. Carfentanil is an opioid that is more powerful than fentanyl.

    Cabral is expected to be arraigned Monday in Brockton District Court.
